Established in 1981 as a mixed-activity holding company (registered with the Financial Services Commission), Sun Insurance became Sanlam Mauritius in August 2010, refocusing on non-life insurance, its core business, in accordance with the new legislation in force.
Based in Port-Louis, the company has branches in Rodrigues, in Camp Du Roi and Port Mathurin, and also operates through a broad network of accredited agents throughout the whole island. Sanlam Mauritius provides a complete range of products, dedicated to all market segments, via its three business lines: individuals, professionals & multinationals. The company has a “client-Centric” vision, offering personalized offers which respond to real market needs and applying a commercial approach based on quality of service.
Built on professional expertise and know-how over the last 38 years, the company aims to become a leader in the local market, while consolidating its position as an important partner for all stakeholders.
Today, the company intends to capitalise on group-synergies and the centuries-old experience of its key shareholder, namely Sanlam Group, to introduce innovative products, meeting the growing needs of an increasingly demanding clientele in a highly competitive market.
The company’s new strategic vision is focused on achieving sustainable growth by capitalizing on its business expertise, coupled with better risk management. Operational efficiency and improved customer service are also part of Sanlam Mauritius’s strategic orientations, in the short and medium term.
Morevoer, the company is applying best practices in terms of corporate governance, complying with international standards. It is also committed in defining an efficient corporate responsibility policy, reflecting its dedication to the community, for the benefit of an integrated and sustainable development of its ecosystem.
Sun Insurance Co Ltd becomes Sanlam, a name change which is effective on June 28, 2019. This rebranding is follows the acquisition of SAHAM Finances’ entire capital, by Sanlam Group, finalised in October 2018.
The seting up of Sanlam in Mauritius is the result of the Group’s overall strategic vision, based on the establishment of a strong and unique brand, which is gaining confidence across the continent.
This rebranding operation also reflects a strong value creation potential for our customers as well as source of growth for the insurance sector in our country.
The company is now a member of a large secular group, Sanlam, the undisputed pan-African leader in financial services and the leading insurance group in Africa.
